Three-Day Backyard Dairy Goat SchoolA 50% non-refundable deposit will guarantee your placement. The remainder of the payment will be due April 31st. Reduced price for members of the same family or group will be taken off the remainder payment.
Learn everything you need to care for your own dairy goats. Three-days of hand-milking Aurora goats will get you ready for action. Practical skills like trimming hooves, administering needles and basic first aid will all be taught with hands-on exercises. We’ll go over planning for shelter and fencing with your existing spaces in mind so that all participants can leave with a set-up plan. We’ll spend the afternoons in the kitchen making cheeses: chèvre, ricotta, feta, mozza and paneer, yogurt, cream, butter and ice-cream. By the end of session you will be ready for goats! Some Aurora Farm goats may be available for purchase to families who have taken this course. Take one more big step towards food-security and health for your family.
